China issues warning over Hong Kong election – BBC News

The Chinese government has responded to the landslide victory for pro-democracy candidates in the Hong Kong elections by emphasising that the city will always be ruled from Beijing – and has warned against further protests. Pro-democracy candidates won almost 90 per cent of seats in local elections. The result is being seen as an outright rejection of Carrie Lam’s leadership and a huge show of support for the anti-Beijing protests that have been going on for months. Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Hong Kong.
